Pangolin are one of the few manufacturers on Pandora that does not produce guns. Their shields provide higher capacity, true to their namesake, but at the cost of a longer shield recharge delay. In Borderlands 2, they offer incredibly high capacity shields (easily over twice as high capacity as other shields) at the cost of lower max HP.

  • The pangolin is a primarily nocturnal, insect-eating mammal which can curl into a ball for protection, and has a thick coat of scales (modified hair) to protect it. This natural protection is no doubt what inspired the manufacturer's name.
